  1. Ohhhh what a great word: schifaiku. I love that!

    Wendy, just a heads up that I have moved my blog address to a cheaper, more migraine-friendly address. You are very welcome to join me there. I will do my utmost to get back here and support you as often as I can. I will certainly continue to share through Triberr.

    Have an awesome week.

    1. I’m really getting into Scifaiku, or “science fiction haiku”. I took a workshop on how to do it at a convention last year and continue to write it. I find it relaxing, both the writing of the poetry and the illustration sketches. πŸ™‚

      1. It is not well known, even in science fiction writing circles. However, there are magazines that specialize in it and you’ll find references to Scifaiku going back for many years. I’m glad I stumbled on it last year. πŸ™‚
